I was a little skeptical, but I really enjoyed hearing this audiobook. There is no particular religious bias towards doctrine, but it was interesting and quite sensible. It is an audiobook that I will hear one day. In the Four Accords, Don Miguel reveals the source of self-sustaining agreements that deprive us of joy and cause unnecessary suffering. If we are prepared to amend these agreements, there are four falsely simple but powerful agreements that we can adopt as guiding principles. Based on the ancient wisdom of Toltec, the four chords offer a powerful code of conduct that can quickly transform our lives into a new experience of freedom, true happiness and love. I have been on the path to spiritual awakening for 25 years, and I wish I had experienced this book at the beginning of my journey! Now it`s a perfect summary of what I`ve discovered myself over the years, wrapped in a beautiful mystical story, the toltec way of looking at it. I cannot recommend this book enough to all those who are looking for a way to live a happy life, to be freed from the fog of beliefs and other effects of our domestication. The four chords are simple, but difficult enough to fit every moment of our lives, hence the importance of the fourth. I`m going to keep this book at the head of my favorite books for a long time and I`m definitely going to reread it to make it even more wise. The two stars are not for the content of the book, or the presentation of it.
Peter Coyote is doing a really amazing job with this book, and I really appreciate Don Miguel Ruiz. However, there are no chapter markers in this audiobook. This makes it really difficult to access certain parts of the book for a simple reference. You just need to clean it up, and maybe you`ll find the place you were looking for. Great restriction, and completely takes the benchmark of this purchase. I am not sure who is guilty of this issue. My recommendation is to buy the physical audiobook that will most likely have chapter markers. I think I`m on my way to my local new-age store. To health. There are thousands of agreements that you have made with yourself, with other people, with your dream of life, with God, with society, with your parents, with your spouse, with your children. But the main agreements are the ones you have with yourself.
In these agreements, you tell yourself who you are, what you feel, what you believe and how you behave. The result is what you call your personality. In these agreements, you say, „It`s me. That`s what I think. I can do certain things, and some things I can`t do. It`s a reality, it`s imagination. it is possible, it is impossible. When we see that it is our chords that dominate our lives, and that we do not love the dream of our lives, we must change the chords. When we are finally ready to change our agreements, there will be four very powerful agreements that will help us break the agreements that come from fear and exhaust our energy. Every time you break a deal, all the power you used to create it comes back to you. If you accept these four new agreements, they will create enough personal power for you to change the whole system of your old agreements. The best books take part in often intimidating subjects and animate them with sharp narratives, so you can stay focused and stay on the track.
